Tottenham's new stadium hasn't stopped them breaking Liverpool's world-record profits

Having initially been due to move in at the start of the season, Spurs finally took to the pitch at their impressive new home.

"I feel proud of my team-mates, staff, fans and I just want to say thank-you for the wonderful support and giving me the opportunity to play in this unbelievable stadium". Sonny, as he is belovedly called by Spurs fans, cut inside to his left foot, then ripped a shot that deflected off a Palace defender and into the back of the net.

Tottenham Hotspur have announced record profits of £112.9 million, in the club's latest accounts as they begin life in their new stadium, breaking the benchmark set by Liverpool in February of £106 million.

The emotion of the occasion could have affected the focus of the Tottenham players after a run that has saw them collect just one point in their previous five Premier League matches, with Pochettino dedicating the victory to the mastermind of the club's extravagant stadium project.


With six games remaining, Tottenham are in a fight with their north London rivals, Chelsea and Manchester United to seal a place in the top four and in next season's Champions League.

"It's just incredible, an unbelievable stadium and unbelievable crowd as well", he told broadcasters after the match. "The noise was just so loud", he said on Sky Sports. "I want to say thank you to the team mates and the fans who supported us to get the three points". They are a big threat on the counter away from home. In the final year at the old White Hart Lane we finished unbeaten and I hope this will be the same.

"I think from the first half we created so many chances, dominated the game, it was time to score".

After a couple of test events the official opening was marked by a pre-match ceremony involving a brass band, a school choir and fireworks illuminating the golden cockerel sitting proudly on top of the South Stand. "I can't believe it".
